? jose theodore? >> reporter: jose theodore was the mvp when heed in 2002, but bruce boudreau has decided that semyon valamov will start tonight. bruce boudreau was short today when asked about his reasoning. >> we talked amongst the coaching staff, and with archie's input and the coach's input and we sat down and we thought okay, what do we do? and with george's input, and we decided this is what we're doing. >> when a teammate goes down, you're there to pat him on the back. the chances that we gave up, the first one that goes in on him is a knuckle puck. almost looked like tim wakefield threw it. so that was tough. jose unfortunately plays goal and usually they get the brunt of the blame when the team makes mistakes. maybe it was more of a change to wake us up rather than his fault, but as teammates, they're there to pick him up and he's back out practicing and working hard. he'll be fine. >> we have one goal in mind here. it's to win. throughout the season, you know, sometimes i want to play, but i mean, you know, we're all so close on this team that we want to win games. whatever the
and beats jose he do theodore. game scored at 2. julio in front tries to sneak it past theodore. no theodore. impressive performance and finished with 35 saves on the evening he is showing a lot of confidence. as for ovechkin's night it was a struggle. not allowing him any shots on goal. just the second time this season. ove didn't tally a shot on net. without it hurt even more later in overtime. the capitals trying to clear it. montreal gets the lucky bounce. out front, shoots and look at that one. that's where it ends. shoots and scores. game is over. 3-2, final. ovechkin, bruce boudreau says the caps superstar was not good. >> he made like this, not a secret, everybody plays against him like this. but -- the -- the deal is that when he's on top of his game, it doesn't matter how they are playing. >> 100% healthy we will get that out of the way. heard a couple of people say last night that he might be playing hurt and that no, we are making excuses for him. he didn't have a great game. >> when -- coach said that -- thinks that -- coach thinks we didn't play -- didn't play the game, change
for the starter. no-brainer. considering theodore hasn't lost a game in regulation in three months. to make things even more interesting, theodore is getting a start against the organization he played for for almost 12 years. montreal also happens to be his hometown. theodore is an interesting case study this year. look at his numbers over the course of the entire season. and they are not impressive. his goals against average 2.81. that ranks 30th in the nhl. his save percentage of 911 is tied for 21st. hard to argue against starting a guy that's 20-0-3 since january 12th. big question now, how long does boudreau stick with his veteran goalie? giving theo the first shot in the playoff was decided a while ago. >> quite frankly, it wasn't seeing anything. keep everybody on their toes. jose last week, he knew he was -- he was going to be the starter. he earned it. it is -- quite a different situation than it fwras this year to last year. there is no short leash. there is -- he's the guy that we are going to go with and that -- for -- you know, and see how it goes. >> lot of people were when the seaso
of this magnitude since theodore roosevelt. for this president to achieve that, whatever you think of the bill itself, in this culture, it is a historic accomplishment. even more so, i think we are caught up in euphoria surrounding the election and the inauguration day, no one who was there will ever forget that. the notion that we had become a center left country overnight rather than a center-right country has been tested and i think it has been disproved which makes obama's achievement even greater. but i agree with what he says. i think that barack obama is an incredible american figure. my son memorizes to presidents and the election of barack obama jobs out at you. jonathan alter of newsweek has a book coming out on the first year of president obama. he sputtered a lot and he did the big bailout. we are not sure where that is more to end up. with the health care, having a year of a slug fest like he had, if he had not passed that health care like he did, i think his presidency may have been one term. >> he did pass it, and i think he seems to be on quite a role. he is in-like. -- zen-lik

on sunday. bruce boudreau had been quiet about his starting goalie but said theodore will start between the pipes against the habs. he was a great comeback story. he was pulled early in the playoffs last year and suffered the loss of his infant son. since august, he has been phenomenal. >> what people did not realize is the 10 previous games before the playoffs, they were not anywhere near his 10 previous games were here. there is no short leash. he is the guy we're going to go with. >> bruce boudreau. the capitals had invited the fans to join them tomorrow morning at 10:30. they want you to rock to the red at practice. there was an extra pack in the step today. you could feel it at practice. there are ready to get it on. >> the last month or so, april you could say, we have had the president's trophy wrapped up. it is more of a relaxation time to get ready and amped up. people are pumped. the games will mean something again and that is important. >> hear this, one day after the district attorney declined to charge ben roethlisberger, ben roethlisberger was called in to meet with roger
to change the momentum. jose theodore is fired up. let him go. bruce boudreau says he is not hanging on. >> it was not an indication of semyon varlamov not being sharpened up the first goal, he could not see the goalie. the other two were kept. i know him well enough that if he is not sharp, i would not have a problem pulling him. >> that means semyon varlamov will start. an agreement has been reached in the wizards deal. >> the hardest thing was losing my father. the second hardest thing was seeing him suffered for so many years with this terrible illness. by comparison, this is not as bad but it is losing something that has been part of the family. it is just hard. as we get ready for game 7 tomorrow night, tom poti had surgery on the i he had. he will be o.k. but he is out tomorrow. he will be out if they win and that will be a good -- a big loss for washington. i think it is 50/50. moma -- montreal has the momentum.

. but theodore roosevelt did it in 1912 with the bull moose party and split the republican party in two. and we're ripe for a new bull moose era. >> the third party presumably would have to be like perot. something like perot put the budget deficit on the map. perot actually made it impossible for bill clinton not to address that issue with historical significance. the one person out there who presumably is in a position to do that and the resources to do it would be mayor bloomberg of new york. >> yes. >> all right. we're going to switch subjects. this is a stream of consciousness hour so -- >> yes. >> -- question to both of you, what's the best historical book, book of history you've read recently? >> i would say i've reread david halberstam's "the best and the brightest." and i read it not just to look at the kennedy administration and vietnam in the 60s, but stylistically. i think halberstam was the best writer of history in the united states since 1945. i've also read his book "the powers that be" about the media climate and halberstam's ability to use a -- be a journalist, a historian and

tender. and while josi theodore will play pretty well, it was placanic who proved his point. all wearing red. even though the caps hosted the first seven shots of the game, 12 minutes in power play mike cavalere fires the wrister. caps need to stay out of the box and they didn't. 1-0 montreal. but three minutes later the caps strike back. joe collects the loose puck. fires a seemingly harmless shot but it goes through traffic. tied one all after one period. no scoring in the second but 47 seconds into the third caps in deep. mike kanubal with the past. he buries his first of the playoff and the caps lead 2-1. but with 12 minutes to go, the caps strike again. that ties the game at two which is how we would go to overtime. and 12 minutes in, the a fore mentioned thomas placanic picks it up at center ice, skates in, and just like that, it is over. 3-2. montreal in overtime. a game the caps appeared to have in control. >> i thought montreal played a really solid system. we came out pretty hard. but they didn't panic and they just waited for their chance and i thought they played a really sma
is theodore may. now, ann, i'm going to ask you about what theodore told me about his job because i'm interested in your response. he said he thinks the future of journalism is going to revolve around what he described as, "leaner, meaner, more versatile types of journalists. the kind who will be able to report, write, blog, photograph, shoot video, edit video, and promote his or her own work through social networking sites," because that's what he's doing. >> true. >> can we do that and still... >> i'm doing it. i feel like we're already doing it. i mean, i'm shooting stills now, and i'm not bad. and i blog, although i hate that word. i-- >> you have a twitter account?u? >> i have half a million followers. and, to me, that's a two-way newspaper. you know, we have, what, 4 or 5 million viewers on the "today" show, about 4 or 5 million on "dateline," about 7 million on "nightly." but now i still want to twitter because there's stories that i can't get on those mainstream news broadcasts, and there's still stories i can't--information i can't get in. so i put a lot of that material on
